My fellow Philadelphians will agree that yesterday was a bit of a (soaking) wet (torrential downpour) blanket on what should be the beginning of a sun dazed summer. And while I do love the sound of rain, it’s really the season of soothing vocals, lapsing melodies, and the moonshine vibe of Pure Bathing Culture.
Playing alongside the likes of shag-nostalgic Foxygen, Caveman, and rad ass rock n’ roller Father John Misty (tonight!), Pure Bathing Culture is on the rise like the heat of that sought after summer day. Their upcoming EP, Moon Tides, drops August 20th. To hold us off until then, you can check them out tonight at Union Transfer, 9 PM!
Pure Bathing Culture is the opener for Father John Misty, whose debut alum, Fear Fun, has been in heavy rotation throughout 2012. If you’ve ever wondered what kind of sound results from a creative process of “hopping in a van with enough shrooms to choke a horse,” then this is your kind of show. If you’ve never wondered that, but any of the following words or phrases intrigues you, by all means, please still consider:
Humor, sex, mischief. Los Angeles. Moves like Mick Jagger. Folk rock served extra rad. Swaggy bassist. LOL, what a motherfucker. Worthwhile music. (Trust me, this will be a good one.)
